  1. I just had bubble tea for the first time--got it at the Eden Center in Falls Church--Seven Corners (Wilson Blvd near Leesburg Pike). There are several places that serve bubble tea (and coffee), good choices for pho, and Hong Que, possibly the best Vietnamese restaurant in the area.

    1. Also available at two places in Wintergreen Plaza in Rockville. least during the summer, bubble tea was available at Teaism (all three of them, I think), as "Zanzhou Pearls." Teaism's were my favorite by far; really was tea, as opposed to the highly sweetened powders/fruit tastes from the other places that were good for a couple of sips but then too cloying.
